NADMO cautions public against moving through flood waters

People are being advised not to travel through floodwaters to reach their destinations by the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO).

The NADMO warning comes two days after four bodies were recovered from flooding in several Ashanti Region communities following Wednesday’s downpour.

Frank Duodu, NADMO’s Ashanti Regional Director, warned the public not to put their lives in danger during a downpour.

During the rainy season, he urged the public to take the Ghana Meteorological Agency’s warnings seriously and to behave accordingly.

“Make sure that when the rains come, we follow the Meteo Agency’s warnings, and if there is no need to go to places you know are flood-prone, don’t go.”

When it rains, Mr. Duodu advises the public to seek refuge on higher ground.

“When the rains come, you find high places to lodge, but if it turns out to be what we saw on Wednesday, not that the place got flooded, but you decide to go through the flood waters, then I will say there is more that we have to do.”

On Wednesday, June 21st, four persons drowned in the Ashanti Region at Atafoa, Sepaase, and Tafo.
